Rumour has it...

... TPTB have decided that DCnU-Tim Drake is going to never have been Robin.

I think this is a short-sighted move from them (assuming the rumour to be true), but, although Tim-Drake-as-Robin is probably second only to Bruce/Batman in terms of comics characters that hold personal meaning to me, I don't feel as slighted by the retcon as I initially thought I would be.

When you get right down to it, Tim Drake-as-things-other-than-Robin was probably around half of my overall fannish output, right? It's likely that they have also changed his personality in ways that would make me angry, should I read the material, but the change on his resume isn't, on itself, something that puts me off.

YES. GO TIM GO! (Red Robin #3)

That is my Timmy. My crazy-smart disturbed crazy Timmy. I know what he found. I know what he figured out.

YES.

God, I love him so much.

Also:

Deadpool #13.

True Summary, redacted so it doesn't offend or spoil anyone: Wade wants to become a *bleep*, so he gets the biggest *bleeps* he can, dresses Bob as a *bleep*, and *bleeps* him with his *bleep* stick a lot. Then on an island Wade finds a *bleep* girl, and gets her to be his *bleep* in exchange for *bleeping* her *bleep*.

(Bleeped out words available on demand.)

Seen all over my f-list

Dick "DJ" Grayson. Right.

I'm

a) Anticipating the pain of canon being shredded in twenty different ways just in the pilot. For starters, I don't think the series is going to be about a small kid - if they are going after the Smallville demographic, he's going to be at least a teen, already messing up the timeline.

b) Nine words: Dawson's Creek On A Circus. And There Is Crime.

c) (If the series gets popular) Dreading the back-influence of TV-canon into comics a couple of years down the road.

d) Quietly grateful that they didn't go for a pre-Batman Bruce show (but only because that's the show I've always dreamed about watching, and I know there's no way they'd do it right).
